This race was per­sonal, when I star­ted racing almost 3 years ago, I was racing with Lara …

That close to going with the plan

PDCC Cri­terium C grade
1 Feb­ru­ary 2015

After my last couple of C grade races at Park­lands, I went in with the simple inten­tion of doing the min­imal amount as work as pos­sible, not to attack and fin­ish with the pack. It almost went to plan.

I actu­ally had a plan for this race, which was get to the front and stay there as a lot of riders will get dropped in first frantic ten minutes. If nobody was will­ing to set a fast pace, I was going to. The race star­ted badly, I was in the third row, about 10 metres […]

I need to pay attention

PDCC C grade cri­terium
25 Janu­ary 2015

I had two cri­teri­ums in two days, I went into this race with no real plan. Nearest thing to a plan was the idea of do not do any work early, just wait and see what hap­pens later in the race, there will be no real attacks early in the race

Stick to the plan

PDCC C Grade cri­terium
18 Janu­ary 2015

I learnt my les­son from my last race here. So I went into the race with a simple plan, keep my head down, do the min­imal amount of work required, and do not attack until the a lap and a bit to go.

Getting better at this cornering, most of the time

PDCC C grade cri­terium
Smeaton Way, Rock­ing­ham
11 Janu­ary 2015

It is sur­pris­ing what a little bit of prac­tice and con­fid­ence does with my cor­ner­ing. Sure I did drop a bike length a couple times in corners, but I spent more time curs­ing the riders in front who slowed into corners, for­cing me to apply the brakes. The only time I applied the brakes to slow into a corner on my own accord was on the fly­ing last lap and I was not tak­ing the usual line, over­tak­ing B grade.

Can corner, can’t hold position in group

WCMCC C grade cri­terium
Smeaton Way, Rock­ing­ham
4 Janu­ary 2015

First cri­terium of the year and after my last three efforts, I was won­der­ing how I would go. As my fear of cor­ner­ing had returned. I was also racing in a bunch of 32 riders,

Back to D grade?

PDDC C grade cri­terium
Motor­plex long course
30 Novem­ber 2014

This report is short and sweet, I got spat out the back after 3 laps and worked hard to avoid being lapped, which I did by about 10 metres …

PDDC C grade cri­terium
Smeaton Way
23 Novem­ber 2014

Just because I have not been post­ing race reports, does not mean I have not been racing. I have already raced 3 WCMCC cri­teri­ums this sea­son. … This was the 1st PDCC cri­terium of the sea­son and the 1st of my new tac­tics. For once instead of being aggress­ive and attack­ing from the start.…

A bunch of rookie mistakes

Over 50s 56km support race
Collie Donnybrook Return Classic
16 August 2014

I entered the over 50s sup­port 56km scratch race at the Col­lie Donnybrook Return Clas­sic, so I could get a look at the tough half of the course without hav­ing to ride the full 106km race at threshold …
